i think its one of these:
There's a ridge. A clear ridge. What are you, some kind of stupid twat or something?
however, i remember old geezers in pubs telling me they were called "straight" glasses, presumably cos they weren't tankardy type glasses.
I am better able to pronounce on this cos of my age. Older men (alrthough there is also a regional aspect) Are more aware of this than youngsters.
My uncle will ask in a pub if he can have his pint in 'a jug' to indicate he wants it in a dimpled handled glass
is one without the curve in the glass?
see my above reply.
'cause those ones are made out of perspex, not glass. they're stronger so they can be stacked on top of each other without the need for the ridge at the top
this is what I'd consider a straight pint glass
but i'm sure my one is actually called a staright glass. when i worked in a pub, people would request things in "a straight glass please", i.e. the shape i posted.
It contains bitter. Nothing gay about that. No sir.
That is a 'straight' for the purposes of the question 'Jug or a straight?'
Glandular or Lennox?
Hula or Smog?
Whirlygig or Clumpy?
I believe he says a 'thin glass' and I think he gets one without the bulge while the six-fingered man is drinking from a bulged pint glass of the type you've shown.
IN SHORT: I think meths is probably right but he's picked a particularly methsian way to go about his argument.
Statement Most In Need of Word "Inevitably":
"Until recently these had a crown stamp and number etched upon them, however EU directives have stated that the glasses instead now, must have PINT with the letters CE etched on them, for synchronisation in the European Union (although the Conservatives have campaigned to have dual markings of crown and CE)"
I never released beer was so sciency
a beer company logo etched into them. This is in case you were wondering what glasses I'm not a fan of.
Otherwise it's fine by me.
when the term was first used that was exactly the sort of glass it was to define (to distinguish from 'jugs' with the handles and the big dimples)
if you worked in a pub, and someone asked for a drink in a straight glass, what you do?
I thought it would be somewhere else, i am having problems posting today or indeed viewing things....ocassionally text suddenly starts to whizz past at a fantastic speed, i dont know whats going on, its dystopic
